Intensely ruby red in colour, Tignanello 2020 has exceptional aromatic complexity: notes of ripe red fruit especially
cherries, strawberries and blackberries are accompanied by delicate floral hints of violets, mallow blossoms and
roses. Its bouquet is completed by notes of roasted coffee and cocoa powder. The vibrant entry gives way to a
caressing layered mouthfeel. The wine closes with spicy notes of pepper and licorice that merge with pleasant
sensations of aromatic herbs for a fresh, lengthy finish.

Production Notes

This growing season’s climate trends challenged us to be focused and diligent both in the vineyards during
harvesting activities and when grapes were brought to the cellar where sorting operations and initial winemaking
processes were essential to achieve optimal results. During fermentation in truncated conical tanks, each individual
must was macerated on the skins giving particular emphasis to preserving aromas, extracting color,and
encouraging desirable tannins that were supple and elegant. Racking was performed after rigorous daily sampling
and tasting. Once separated from the skins, the wine was transferred into small oak barrels where it underwent
malolactic fermentation to accentuate aromatic finesse and complexity. Aging took place in French and Hungarian
oak barrels, partly new and partly second passage, for a total of 15 months. After an initial period of aging the lots
separately, they were blended then completed barrel aging. Tignanello, made primarily with Sangiovese and a small
percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, underwent an additional 12-month period of aging in the
bottle before being released.
